Introducation And Post-Screening Q&A with Documentary Filmmaker Rick Beyer
The Ghost Army tells the story of a hand-picked group of American GI’s that undertook a bizarre mission during WWII: create a traveling road show of deception on the battlefields of Europe, with the German Army as their audience. The 23rd Headquarters Special Troops used inflatable rubber tanks, sound trucks, and dazzling performance art to bluff the enemy again and again, often right along the front lines. Many of the men picked to carry out these dangerous deception missions were artists. Some went on to become famous, including the painter Ellsworth Kelly and fashion designer Bill Blass. In their spare time, they painted and sketched their way across Europe, creating a unique and moving visual record of their war. Their secret mission was kept hushed up for nearly50 years after the war’s end. Since the release of this award-winning film, Rick Beyer has gone on to produce a New York Times bestselling book, The Ghost Army of World War II, to host annual tours in Europe that pertain to the unit’s assignments,and to speak and screen his film at venues throughout the U.S.

October 14, 2018 from 2-4 p.m.
Film runtime: 1 hour, 8 minutes; Mae Latta Hall
This special event is made possible in part with support from the Cedar Falls Art and Culture Board.
